    The comparison everyone makes is Marcus Camby. I think Davis is going to be better. He's a work in progress as an offensive player, but is going to make an immediate impact on the defensive end.

    Really surprised by this trade, Lewis definitely gets bought out by the Hornets, but it seems to go directly against the team's rebuilding strategy of building through the draft. The nice thing is the team is definitely becoming more defensive minded, but there really isn't any offense in a starting lineup of Wall, Crawford, Ariza, Nene, Okafor. Hopefully this trade is a sign that Okafor's knee issues are behind him, otherwise another silly trade by an inept front office.

    Respecting his ability to play basketball and supporting him are not one in the same, you guys need to take his cock out of your throats the guy looks to you as pieces of shit (ironically).

    i really like his game and cannot comment really on my total outlook of the dude outside of the court

    don't pay much attention to espn/sports news[networks] aside from actual games or pre- and post-game interviews
    small tidbits i see while at the gym like that one kid being able to play with the Heat and practice + shoot with LBJ was kind of weird

    so i can say honestly i just respect the dude for what he does on the court. it entertains me from a competitive and skill set POV

    and having known everyone in school that hated LBJ because they only got love for Kobe made me relish even more the times when James performed better as an individual athlete and in a team

    Don't be surprised when it happens -- not for lack of success but because ownership won't have money.

    Also, its funny to see the calls for sanity about not blowing up OKC but there was basically none of that before the series started and dudes were like, "yeah, they're going to be a dynasty."

    Is there a more frustrating player in the league than Russell Westbrook?

    They were going to be a dynasty cuz they were going to own the heats but it appears finals experience is far more valuable than previously thought. They will be a dynasty if they can keep harden and ibaka.

    I spent all this time defending Harden only to be reminded later of how fucking annoying his flopping is.

    OKC looks like shit again.

    Harden on Lebron has been a disaster. Ibaka. Play Ibaka on Lebron. Shefaslosha sat the entire 2nd. And Miami was getting everything they wanted. Brooks is losing the plot.

    It looks like Miami is just better than OKC.

    How is it even possible for fish to flagrantly foul LeBron?
